Itinerary

Tobruk Sheep Station

Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and experience the open paddocks, dams and Australian bush at one of outer Sydney’s most stunning regions for a taste of true Aussie farm culture. From the city we drive over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and along the Great Northern Road to leave the metropolis behind whilst your driver will provide commentary on Sydney history and what you will be seeing today.

Your first stop will be at a fruit orchard where you’ll enjoy a tractor ride through the plantation with a farmer who will explain to you the process of how their produce is grown and harvested during the summer months of November to January. You will see rows and rows of various stone fruits. If you’d like, take home a bag full of your very own choice picks (own expense). Whilst on the farm you will also get the chance to taste some delicious Australian honey produced naturally on site. Make sure you say hello to the Orchard’s friendly farm animals there as well!

From the orchard, we head to Tobruk sheep station where you will be greeted by an Australian stockman on horseback. Relax with them at Drovers Camp and watch them make a delicious damper (campfire bread) topped with butter and Golden Syrup and enjoy the Australian bush tradition of sipping a “billy tea”. Learn about the history of Tobruk and the unique life of an Australian stockman first hand.

Then watch a boomerang throwing and whip cracking display by the skillful stockmen. Get up close and personal with the sheep as they are herded to you from far away paddocks. Watch the stockmen and their amazingly well-trained dogs demonstrate a sheep muster. A working dog is a stockman’s best friend. You will be amazed at how these intelligent and essential working dogs accurately respond to their masters voice when doing what they love, herding sheep for the farmers.

Then in the wool shed, partake in a sheep shearing demonstration followed by a wool room presentation. Australia’s economy “rode on a sheep’s back” during the mid-20th century prior to our reliance on synthetic fibres. Very little has changed in the wool production and shearing process since then, only the volume required has since diminished. It’s then time to enjoy an authentic Aussie BBQ lunch back at the drover’s camp.

Your journey continues through this picturesque region as you cross over the Hawkesbury River on the old Sackville ferry. You will arrive at the beautiful Tizzana winery and vineyard where you can indulge in a tasting of their white and red wines accompanied by cheese & biscuits. Continue on to see Australia's oldest sandstone church named Ebenezer. This quaint little church dates back to 1809.

On the way home you will stop in the old colonial town of Windsor, overlooking the picturesque Hawkesbury River. Why not check out the local Museum there or browse through its boutique stores and the old fashioned lolly shop. Enjoy an afternoon tea in one of the many cafes (own expense) or end the day with a drink at one of Australia’s oldest licensed pubs; The Macquarie Arms Hotel before returning back to the “big smoke” of Sydney that will feel like a world away from the day in the life that you have just experienced.
